Joker actor Heath Ledger found dead

News outlets (for instance see Sky here and the BBC here ) are suggesting an accidental overdose, but at the moment information about Heath Ledger's sudden death is sparse. Pills were apparently discovered at the scene. However it happened, it's now been widely reported that the 28-year-old Australian-born actor – the Joker from Batman: The Dark Knight – has been found dead at a flat in New York; the star of A Knight’s Tale and Brokeback Mountain was an excellent actor who’ll be greatly missed.
